June 16, 2016

How can a dream come true even after having a number of obstacles in life? Here is a story of a tribal boy, Rajnikant Nayak who made all possible efforts to crack the prestigious IIT exam.


Rajnikant Nayak was very small when he lost his father. His mother is the only income earner in the family. His sister is confined to a bed because of illness. But, these obstacles didn’t discourage the tribal boy from Denua village, Mayurbhanj district to crack IIT.    


Rajnikant secured 245th rank. While talking to the media, he expressed his desire to join a core stream at any of the IITs. He said, “It’s a dream come true for me and my family. I never thought of studying in IIT (Indian Institute of Technology). My life completely changed after joining Kalinga Institute of Social Science (KISS). KISS institute teachers and environment are the reasons behind my success. ”  


Rajnikant secured 80 percent marks in his plus-II exam which is highest among the KISS students. KISS offers free coaching for IIT, IIM, NIT and medical entrance test to its 30 deserving students.


Founder of KISS Achyuta Samanta said, “Our dreams are coming true with the success of Rajnikant Nayak. From last three years, we are taking many efforts for KISS student’s success in IIT-JEE. Rajnikant’s success will encourage other students to join IIT in the upcoming years.”
